its really not that hard take a pencil and ruler and draw the lines before you cut then its all dremel work it does a clean cut job and looks factory, i only took a little over an inch off because i didnt want my fenders to wave or buckle from taking to much plastic out of them some guys flat fender right off, i choose to leave a little over hang, like i said its easy to do, mine came out great good luck with yours

Since I am not at home and at school, I don't have access to a dremel tool right now. Would an exacto knife work just as well? or should I wait?

if you like your fingers id wait, lol im at school now too so i have to wait until i can roll the jeep out of the garage. i did mine two weeks ago but ran out of light so i have to still do my rear. its easy if you do it right some guys just hack em off mine still look oem and i personally think it looks better using a dremel or a cut off wheel if you have one

I did mine with a razor knife. Went quite easily, maybe not as easy as a dremel, but not bad at all. I just used a candle to heat the blade between cuts and it sliced away at the plastic.

Did mine today with a 3" cutoff wheel and then cleaned it up with 60 grit sandpaper wrapped around a ruler.

I think I tried every possible method to do mine, dremel with a cutoff wheel, coping saw, and razor knife. Dremel melted them and made a huge mess, saw was a ton of work, and left nasty edges to be smoothed, and the razor knife was cake... Score it, bend it and peel it off... Nice edges for the most part and much quicker and easier... Wish I'd tried it first. I'll get some pics up soon...

Not exactly stock (RR 7" Extended Fender Flares), but did a trim job the other night nonetheless and here how it came out:

p.s.- They still need some fine tuning with a piece of sand paper and then a few coats of paint.
